I jailbroke my iPad 2 perfectly but it fails every time I try my iPhone.

It always gets stuck at "Beginning jailbreak. This may take a while."

I have left it running for nearly 30 minutes with no change, it only took like a minute for my iPad.

Then after I force quit the app and try again, it always tells me that there was a problem and that it tries to fix it. But then I try jailbreaking after that only to be stuck in the same cycle.

Can anybody help?

EDIT: Also tried on different computers, but to no avail.

Yup, backup the phone, then restore it as a new phone, jailbreak, and then restore from backup.

Ok, I will try that this weekend when I have more time.

Does anyone know why it isn't working though?
